Robert Mugabe, who led Zimbabwe to independence from Britain in 1980 and then crushed his opposition during nearly four decades of rule, always liked to be seen as a devout Catholic. Mugabe, pictured in a Feb. 23, 2014, photo, died at age 95 Sept. 6, 2019, in Singapore, where he often received medical treatment in recent years. (CNS photo/ Reuters/Philimon Bulawayo)
